Open Philanthropy recommended a grant of $5,000,000 over two years to Californians Against Pandemics to support work on the California Pandemic Early Detection and Prevention Act ballot initiative. If passed by voters, the California Pandemic Early Detection and Prevention Act will create a grantmaking institute that will fund research on and development of pathogen genomics in order to reduce biosecurity risks posed by novel pathogens.

This falls within our focus area of biosecurity and pandemic preparedness.
